The New Album
“Blues Power,” the newest album by Jeff Dale and The South Woodlawners, is exactly what the title says it is. After over 40 years of performing and writing original roots music, Jeff Dale delivers a batch of tunes that radiate his hard scrabble beginnings on the south side of Chicago, his resiliency through tough times and his well-earned sense of humor. “Blues Power” is Jeff Dale’s sixth commercial recording in the last nine years and here are some stand out facts:
Blues Power is co-produced by Americana legend, Marvin Etzioni. Marvin was an original member of the Geffen Records roots rock band Lone Justice and his playing and his producing credits can be found from The Counting Crows to Trombone Shorty to Stephen Stills and Judy Collins.
Guest performers on Blues Power include Rock n Roll Hall of Famer and founding member of the band Chicago, Lee Loughnane, members of Buddy Guy’s current band, the late James Cotton’s drummer, a young, hard touring jam rock band “Hunter & The Dirty Jacks”, and the first chair cellist of the L.A. Opera.
Blues Power is mastered by four-time Grammy® winning engineer Joe Palmaccio.
